In addition to taking the pledge, your company can contribute to the fight for recovery in other ways. For example:
1. Educate your employees about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse
Although most people have encountered addiction in some form or fashion during their life, many don’t understand the true nature of the problem.
Understanding how to recognize the signs of serious alcohol and drug abuse can not just save your company money, it can save lives.
Move the employee from handling any dangerous equipment immediately and address the issue with them in a private, sensitive manner.
Many people avoid seeking treatment because they are afraid of losing their job. Having a leave policy for treatment can help convince people to seek help.
